We have important reminders and updates for you regarding parking for the fall 2017 semester.

  • Lake Ave Garage (enter off Terrace St only) – N permits on levels 4, 5, and 6 ONLY

  1. I got back to campus late, where am I going to park?
  • N 10, 11, and 12 – Surface lots on Lake Ave where it meets Volunteer Blvd (west side of campus)

Concerned about getting back to your residence hall?

  • Call the T:Link service at 974-4080 or from a campus blue phone
    • OR you can use the TransLoc App and request the bus on-demand
  • The T:Link will pick you up and assist you in getting where you need to go.
